UK delays more all-lane smart motorways for five years

New "all-lane running" smart motorways have been paused while their safety is assessed, the government has said.

It's a sensible move. I'm convinced all the modeling that was done to justify all-lane-running assumed a higher average standard of driving and awareness than is the reality.

I would bet the reason for the pause is based on cost rather than safety.
